Default Need a little help guys...

Been looking for a set of holies for a few months now and still no luck. Does anyone have these for sale or know someone who does? I'm getting pretty desperate.

They are going to be the standard wheel on Cooper's again next year so you may see more pop up for sale soon enough.

All douche bags aside (), I've gotten some pretty good deals. It's worth a look.

craigslist is pretty good too if you search vaguely like Cooper 15inch wheel or 175/65/15.
I got a set of four with good tires for $200.

I didn't think the older 15s fit the new cars. Is this essentially a new wheel model?

Nope. I doubt it's a problem to open up the holes to 14mm, but I happen to know that holies will fit a 2nd gen Cooper without modification anyway.

Get a free set of tires with the offering of your first born.

I checked craigslist here in ATL. Got nothin'. I can call up my former SA at MINI of South Atlanta and see if he knows of anything.

Any particular reason for the holies (I assume AutoX)?

He doesn't know of anything. Sorry dude. I'll try a couple of other folks out here and see if they know of anything.

Have you tried calling Way at Way Motor Works? I'm not sure if he'd be of much help, but he might know something since he's pretty active in the local MINI scene here in ATL.
